Synopsis:

Renewable sources are becoming increasingly important sources of energy for buildings. Understanding their characteristics is key to the proper design and operation of these systems. The course therefore looks in detail at renewable sources and their applications.

Requirements:

Preparation of the seminar paper within the deadline.

Passing the test at least 60%.

Demonstration of knowledge during the oral examination.

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Introductory seminar, introduction to the issues and schedule, legislation, regulations, situation, renewable resources, applicability and availability of resources

2.Solar energy - principle of use, passive systems

3.Solar energy - active systems, photothermal systems, design of solar thermal systems

4.Solar energy - active systems, photovoltaic systems, design of solar photovoltaic systems

5.Environmental energy and geothermal energy - uses, heat pumps, types, design method, balancing

6.Geothermal energy - characteristics, methods of use, cogeneration - characteristics of technology, benefits.

7.Biomass - sources, methods of biomass production, biomass processing.

8.Biomass - methods of energy extraction from biomass, biomass combustion.

9.Wind energy- wind turbines, equipment design, characteristics, energy benefits.

10.Water energy- water turbines, wave energy, equipment design, characteristics, energy contribution.

11. Non-traditional energy sources - fuel cells, solar, wind and hydro, supplementary energy sources.

12. Energy efficient buildings - examples, building characteristics, design concepts, coordination of systems.

13. Renewable energy sources - evaluation and further development

Syllabus of tutorials:

The course has only lectures.
